Teasers Girls

Trying to get an imitation accepted

Teasers GirlsTeasers was a small Tennessee-based restaurant chain that was, in essence, a Hooters rip-off. From the color scheme and interior of the restaurants, right down to the outfits of their sexy female servers. (I’m not complaining, mind you, just saying.) They’d hoped to give Hooters a run for their money. They didn’t. Not because anything at Teasers was bad (I ate there and I’d give the food, atmosphere, and servers all a thumbs up) ….it just wasn’t Hooters.

I happened to run into these two Teasers Girls at right, during the 1994 Summer Lights festival in downtown Nashville. The ladies were handing out these fliers and just doing some PR for the then-newly-opened sport grill.What they’re wearing here wasn’t the official Teasers Girls uniforms, which were very similar (of course) to the Hooters Girls uniforms.

Teasers has long since gone out of business, which isn’t a surprise, especially since Hooters franchises started popping up all around Nashville during the mid-90s. So, the reason this post isn’t in the “Whatever Happened to..” file, is because it’s no mystery whatever happened to the Teasers Girls. They got jobs at Hooters.
